Safe Arrival - A Note from the Mission President's Wife


Dear Brother & Sister Nelson,
Sister Brooke Nelson arrived safely Monday afternoon.  At the mission home we enjoyed an evening of paperwork, interviews with President Glende, dinner (Kentucky burgoo & Derby pie), and a testimony meeting before retiring to bed.  You can imagine they were tired and were happy to be sent to bed around 9:30 pm.
Tuesday after breakfast and some training at the mission home, we went to the chapel next to the mission office where Sister Nelson met her companion, Sister Gossett.  They will be working in Corbin, Kentucky.  After lunch and photos all the new missionaries left for their proselyting area to begin their adventure.

I've attached a photo of the companionship and of the group of arriving missionaries (front left to right: Sisters Nelson, Gardner, Glende, President Glende; middle l to r:  Elders Savage, Wood, Duran; back l to r: Elders Webb, Granados, Murphy.

For your information, Monday is preparation day when the missionaries check their e-mail and write home.  If a holiday falls on Monday they will e-mail on Tuesday.
Thanks for your love, encouragement and support of your wonderful daughter!
Sincerely,
Sister Stephanie Glende

Yay! I love the update. You're doing such a good job with her blog mom...i love it. You should crop that first picture of her with the big group and put it as her mission plaque picture...it's gorgeous. I cry with every letter and especially with these pictures. I couldn't be more proud or happy for her.
